they will pose a threat. the obama administration to say this was a terrorist attack immediately. are they doing a good job handling this one? >> it is too early to tell. this is a difficult one. i'm not going to say that. when you have a group like this that is clearly well-organized, i think it was pre-planned, that had this much success with this many hostages. this is as hard a problem as it gets on the ground to unwind. the outcomes of these are not always great. that said, what we don't have is an overarching policy. this is what many of us have been talking about. mali is the first victim of libya, because of the weapon cashes that were raided and the inability of anyone to stop those weapons and people. you had tune you had tu nearbyians coming down. you have all of this converging together. it makes it a very, have he dangerous recipe. that's why you can't just handle mali or benghazi. you have to have an overarching plan that puts pressure on these groups. you can't just fire a few missiles and pack up and go home and hope for the best. it is not going to work. this is a can of worms.

's not been an attempt to have stability in libya. the obama administration has been repeating the mistake that the bush administration made in iraq and afghanistan. they were focused on the military campaign but not focus on the nation building. we have paid a huge cost for that in iraq afghanistan. a lot of the arms in the arsenal of muammar gaddafi have been smuggled into countries like y fueled a the fi fresh insurgency. we have taken our eye off the ball in libya ever since the overthrow of gaddafi. that's the big issue from the hearings. host: our guest is max boot, senior fellow with the council on foreign relations. was a senior foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates conventional conflicts. tribal warfare is essentially grow warfare. conventional warfare is a relatively recent inve

think that the administration has understood that well? >> i think obama understands it. i think obama understands that we're in a new age. if you will, the 20th century was a century of struggle for hegemony. and that involved direct political contests, military power. we are now in an age in which struggle for hegemony makes no sense, it's more whether we can establish enough stability in the world that we can deal with global problems. in that context, economic health is the point of departure. it's also the point of departure for global support for the united states and respect for the united states. >> brown: when he brings up climate change though through security, that's what he's talking about? >> exactly. but i do suspect as a practical matter he's going to be more preoccupied with potential strategic challenges. in the middle east, first of all and that involves a whole gambit of issues, in our relations with china, potentialfully our relations with russia and the growing problem of how do we structure an effective alliance with europe. and these the kind of issues that requi

attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakistan from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the deaths of dozens of people, including up to 48 of the captured workers. algerian forces say they recovered at least 25 bodies after storming the militant held gas complex saturday, bringing the confirmed death toll to
he might or the obama administration might carry that out in a place like algeria where that government and their military forces are making it clear they don't want outside help, might be pretty hard for the u.s. to live up to that promise at least for the moment. ashleigh? >> well, you know, barbara, we're four month from september 11th, we're in next door libya we still don't have an arrest of said terrorists who dared to do what they did to us, kill our ambassador and take out others who were serving in the mission there, so i love that tough talk. but, please, really, can we? >> yeah. no, i think you have actually just hit on it. everyone is now very anxious to say that north africa, mali, algeria, tunisia, libya, egypt, all of this is the new front for al qaeda, safe havens, the war on terror. a lot of words being thrown around, ashleigh, but action on the ground, being able to put military force into there and hunt down these north african al qaeda leaders and the cells of al qaeda, that's another thing. a lot of these countries are not anxious for outside force,
the obama administration, indeed, for the next four years. >> how much do you think this is going to be questioned about clearly this hostage incident has been remarkable in its nature. what's happening in mali, northern mali also remarkable in terms of the islamist strong hold in northern mali. how much have these two hearings, i should note she's going to be in front of the senate foreign relations committee at 9:00 eastern and the house foreign affairs committee at 2:00, how much of the hearings will be what we can look forward to in terms of problems? how much will be looking back at benghazi? >> i'd say probably half and half. i think there's going to be a lot of questions from republicans about the blunders that were made. four state department officials were put on administrative leave, resigned, forced to resign including the deputy secretary of state. why was he in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, a day when everybody in the world was bracing for some sort of terrorist action? why was he there? why was he there with such limited security? and where were the libya
." tonight we're raising very serious questions about the obama administration's decision to hand over some of our most deadly military weapons to egypt. now, particularly given the nation's ties to anti-terrorist groups like the muslim brotherhood, and how idiotic the proposal is to give away f-16's and 200 tanks to a company led by a 9/11 truther like mohammed morsi. we have retired air force, tom mcinerney and a fox newt contributor, liz cheney. liz, i know you know this region very, very well. i know the argument was there were more moderate people in the military, but they've been replaced by supporters of mohammed morsi, so, i know -- what is the reason, tell me the motivation here knowing that this is going to put israel at risk. >> you know, i can't, i can't imagine what the motivation is, sean, you have a situation where the gift of these f-16's was approved back in 2010, when you had a very different set of circumstances. the egyptian military underhosni mubarak had in fact been an important ally of the united states. i think that the egyptian military still has the potential to b
still have yet to find a way to pin down any of the obama administration officials for any tangible wrongdoings. >> fran, do you think it was a waste of time? >> i do think it was a waste of time. and it was unfortunate, anderson. you've had on family members on your program and i imagine myself as a family member if i had lost somebody watching this. look, it was a waste of time to ask secretary clinton about the talking points given to ambassador susan rice. >> and that's what -- they seemed to spend a lot of time on talking points given to susan rice. >> right. and yet when ambassador -- when secretary clinton sort of loses her temper in the senate hearing and says what difference does it make whether this resulted from a protest or some guys who went out for a walk and decided to kill americans, the right comeback to that was it does matter. if you're telling us you want to solve the prorks you have blem, understand what caused that. >> let's play the moment. where she got mad at senator johnson. >> again, we were misled that there were protests and then something sprang out of
choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy, and i urge his speedy confirmation. >> and at her side one of her toughest critics on benghazi. today recounting how he and fellow vietnam veteran john kerry worked together to normalize relations with vietnam in the 1990s. >> helping to establish a relationship with vietnam that serves american interests and values rather than one that remained meyered many mutual resentment and bitterness is one of my proudest accomplishments as a senator. i expect it is one of john's as well. witnessing almost daily his exetch lear statesmanship is one of the highest privileges i've had here. >> kerry's first appearance on the senate foreign relations panel as an activist. some things don't change. >> how do you ask a man to be the last man to die in vietnam? >> i'm tired of -- >> when i first came to washington and testified, i was testifying as part of the group of people who came here to have their voices heard, and that is, above all, what this place is about, so i respect, i think, the woman who was voicing her concerns about t
go. is it your spence sense that president obama and his administration may not care enough to do something about these murders on 9/11? >> my primary concern they have no plan. if they have a plan, they really need to re-look at metrics of how it is working. we have large aid donors who are more willing to accommodate the terrorists than our demands for justice. we have basically the move of al-qaeda's base from afghanistan to 5,000 miles closer to the united states across northern africa and on europe's doorstep is profoundly important strategic change and the administration has nothing to say about it. that is deeply troubling. >> gregg: what do you expect, if anything, that is meaningful, that is, from hillary clinton or will it be subterfuge. >> she learned the art of the filibuster. there will be some long questions and maybe some long responses. i hope that we get some sense for why did the state department have realtime information that went against what the administration had to say for weeks after this profound event. why have we run into these difficulties with the inve
. rick with more. >> reporter: this is big, arthel, because the obama administration has used the concerns of lawmakers in nebraska to put the brakes on the keystone xl oil pipeline, and now the governor says he's okay with the project moving forward after the pipeline's operator came up with a new route that bypasses a sensitive area in his state. president obama has defended his controversial decision to stop the pipeline project by saying that even nebraska's republican governor was opposed to it. now that's no longer the case. supporters of the pipeline have pointed out the number of jobs that it could potentially create. critics have said that it will pose many environmental problems, and now the president has to decide whether to give the project his okay at a time when he used part of his inaugural address yesterday to reach out to environmentalists. and we've just heard from our crack white house team, arthel, sarah courtney, one of our producers there saying that the white house spokesman was asked about this at the briefing today, jay carney referred reporters to the
. they sound like comments from a man who is about to leave the obama administration which he is. the president in his inaugural address said a decade of war is ending. when he accepted the democratic presidential nomination on september 6th. he said al qaeda is on the road to defeat. five days later, ambassador chris stevens, three other americans, killed in libya. we see the french in operation in mali against an air i can't -- area that al qaeda terrorists carved out the size of texas. as you mentioned this terrible hostage-taking in algeria where there are at least 37 dead and quite likely more. the war on global terrorism is far from over. and so secretary panetta may want to talk to the president about that. >> what we've seen, the war against terrorism and the obama administration has existed in drone strikes in terms of the major mo. we know that we're obviously, you know, on the road to pulling out of afghanistan and iraq so that is clearly what the president is referring to but would you be surprised to see an attack against moktar, who led the attack and looking for attention in the
their children. >> republican lawmakers have been fiercely critical, of course, of the obama administration's response to the attack in benghazi. then secretary clinton got a little fired up during some of the testimony. >> do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened wouldn't have ascertained immediately that there was no protests? i mean, that was -- that was a piece of information that could have been easily, easily obtained. >> well, but senator -- >> within hours if not days. >> senator, i -- you know, when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on. >> i realize that -- >> number one. number two. >> i realize that's a good excuse. >> no, it's a fact. number two, i would recommend highly you read both what the ard said about it and the classified ard because even today there are questions being raised. now we have no doubt that they were terrorists, they were militants. they attacked us, they killed our people but what was going on and why they were doing what they were doing. >>
